Reviews

On the front cover the words, a picture book for toddlers is printed and that is exactly what this book is. It is an oversized book that illustrates 1000 animals and labels them. The book is divided into animals in different environments, the lives of animals and amazing animals. The pages are laminated which makes this a very child friendly book. Children can spend hours looking at common as well as very obscure animals. I especially liked the category of unbelievable outfits that highlighted the unusual markings of some animals... This is a must-have book for any ESL (English as a second language) classroom or school library. Children ages 3-10 will love the book... 5 out of 5.--Sandra Pacheco Youth Services Book Review (12/09/2016)
